Orlando passing centuries!

At last the painting of immortal Orlando, I hope you'll enjoy the mystery as I do.

Orlando is an acrylic painting on canvas, the bigger one, the size of this artwork is 100x80 cm. 

It deals with the theme of relativity of time and immortality - charming immortals how could one resist? 

Orlando is one of my favourite book characters, s/he is an immortal from a novel by Virginia Woolf. The queen Elizabeth I. of England gave to Orlando properties on one condition - he will never grow old and lost his beauty...

The Orlando on painting walks through garden and vears lady's dress from 17th century and gentleman's wig, both together reffering to his change from a gentleman to lady during centuries. S/he is also holding two pocket watches, in the middle of each are small images, horse and lady in garden - moments in his/her life.

Sincerely, how would it be to percieve time as s/he does?

This painting is currently exposed in Prague at the exhibition called 'In between time', more.
